Is it true that people compliment your eyes only when they have nothing nice to say about your face?

I heard somewhere that people compliment your eyes only when they have nothing nice to say about your face or anything.

Is that true? Because if so then I don't know what to think because that's all I have heard about myself "You have beautiful eyes". And I was always pleased to hear that and took them as genuine compliments but now I am not so sure :/
Because think about it, who DOESN'T have pretty eyes!

  • Uh no? I mean they could really think you have really pretty eyes. Are they supposed to notice how pretty your eyes are and then say "you're pretty"? Or "nice face"? If your eyes are what got their attention they're gonna compliment your eyes.
    Plus if they thought you were unattractive they wouldn't be complimenting you.

  • not true, i know this girl who has amazing eyes, they really stand out, they are dark and big, and they make her face look more addorable, but you end up complementing her eyes because that's obviousy what's making everything else looks so good, i mean if she was my girlfriend i would probably enjoy more blowjobs than regular sex just to keep on looking those amazing eyes, i don't have a crush on her, but she is hot enough for me to say yes without hesitation

  • NO WAY. I am a eye guy. the eyes are what I look at and can be the first thing to grab me. my ex wife had amazing eyes that just grabbed me and I never got tired of looking at them even after 25 yrs.

  • Guys get negative reactions if we compliment her breasts, or her legs, or her hips, or her hands, or her feet, or her lips.

    The "safest" compliments for a guy to give are eyes, smile, hair, and her outfit as a whole.

  • OMG NOT AT ALL!

    Eyes are so beautiful, and they make the face beautiful!

    You can take those compliments to heart. Nothing nefarious or redirecting, there.

  • I don't think so, I think that good looking eyes need a good face, or else why would I look at your face? or want to stare into your eyes. some people have tired looking eyes/half closed eyelids and it looks unattractive or whatever.

  • Not for me. If say you have nice eyes, it is because I think you are beautiful and I like you. If I go out of my way to say you're hot, well, I might not be interested in you, but hey, at least you're hot.

  • No, one of the very first things I noticed about my girl was her eyes. They're deep blue and captivating to say the least. I always tell her how much I adore her eyes still.

  • Untrue. It may be that your eyes stand out and are so beautiful they are impossible to ignore. I've said that to very pretty women before. The eyes though got me the most.

  • If your not fat, and it comes from guys, its because they don't want tell you something dumb and blow it for themselves, like; "nice ass". And sometimes depending on color eyes are truly beautiful

  • Naw, that's BS. I HATE complimenting random women. When i do it just comes out. Some women just have eyes that leave you unable to think.

  • I don't think that's true. I tell people they have nice eyes because I find their eyes particularly pretty. Doesn't mean nothing else about you is attractive.

    • Aw! :) But not everyone compliments in a genuine way :P

  • Not that i've heard, i mean if you didn't like how someone looked you'd usually just not say anything, or maybe compliment some aspect of their personality. I'm pretty sure those were genuine compliments i know i've gotten the eye one a lot (my eyes are big, but almond shaped so sort of Asian looking but blue) i like to think they were genuine haha >.< Tbh i have heard about people saying nice smile when they have nothing else to say, but i mean some people really have nice smiles :)

  • I hope not. A lot of people say I have pretty eyes though I really don't see it. It's mainly because of the colour (s). A lot of people think I'm attractive in general though so I don't believe this is true. If you don't find someone attractive, then just don't compliment? I only compliment people and things when I genuinely find them attractive.

  • No. I mean, if you have brown eyes that look like everyone else's, then it's possible. But if you have green, or blue (like me), or purple, or some other unusual or pretty color, then odds are, it's a genuine compliment. Be proud of your eyes! For me, it's the only feature I have that I wouldn't change a bit and am 100% confident on :)

  • Unfortunately, yes. As you said, most people have nice eyes- it's hard not to. So... It's kinda generic =[

    • Ah well.. Its better to have SOMETHING nice than not to have anything nice, I guess.

    • This is very true. There's always someone who has it worse lol.

  • You more than likely have a beautiful face and beautiful eyes.

    I think in my case yes I do have an ugly face and nice eyes.
    I know my eyes are gorgeous. When I use makeup, it's what I work on the most. Unfortunately the rest of my face is ugly. So I have big beautiful brown eyes, and an ugly manly face.

  • No that is not true... I think eyes and hair are the most beautiful features of your face. Eyes makes the beauty of a person. If someone was to say you have a beautiful nose, that would be weird and if someone was to say you have nice lips, that would be uncomfortable if not expected from you.

  • I think that CAN be true, but I don't think it's always true. Some people really do have eyes that everyone notices and has to compliment. And no matter what, you can't let statistics and generalizations ruin your life.
